This is a wonderful spot to watch fireworks. Also, a wonderful date spot since there are nearby restaurants to choose from. In February, they change the colors to pink in the fountain to support breast cancer. They change the colors (lighting) other times of the year as well to correspond with the holidays. It is also a very cool spot... More

Lovely downtown (on southside) park to spend some time watching people, boats and sunsets. The fountain is so pretty at night with the colored lights. You can take some amazing photos with the skyline and the fountain. Seems safe but would not go late at night as I would not in any city. Easy to park and very relaxing.

Not much to say about a fountain. My 7 month old was amazed at the sounds, lights, and movement. Also, it was very clean.

We first found the friendship Fountain by accident on our way to the science and history museum. It was stunning in the day and we took numerous pictures and promised to come back at night. We really were not disappointed and I can't stress enough how much I would recommend this as an attraction in Jacksonville. Stunning.

I had emailed the Parks Department to find out what time the lights came on so we could time accordingly. I was told 7:30. We arrived, walked, waited, walked across the bridge (which was a highlight), still no lights. At 8:15 we left, very disappointed.

This is a must see. And wow! At night the colors are mesmerizing. The kids will love it and it's a very romantic spot. Take some time to take a stroll here. You won't be disappointed!!

A great place to hang out, watch the water and the spectacular vista of the city of Jacksonville. Go at night!

This is just a great place to go in the summer and let the spray cool you down. There is a beautiful view of the St. John's river, The Landings and downtown Jacksonville. The fountains colors are nice to see.

The fountain has always been a stable of downtown Jacksonville. Usually when you see pictures of Jacksonville the fountain is usually in the shot. In recent months the city has been doing many upgraded to the fountain and riverwalk . The additions are beautiful and is a romantic free spot for couples to walk around and get a great view...
